Facebook Insights dahsboard

Hi! I have a commercial Facebook page I run, and I currently have to export the excel reports manually and import them into power bi. Do you know if there is any way of skipping this process and connecting the two directly? The types of insights I look at are: page impressions, video views, page reach 28 days, post reach 28 days, post comments, page likes, etc. So it's the information that you can only get from Facebook insights on your own page. I know Tableau offers a connector, so I was hoping something similar could be achieved with Power Bi. Thank you, singarfield

@singarfield,

 

Unfortunately, power bi has not developed such kind of connector, if you really want to connect to Facebook Graph, you may try odata.feed instead.

Hi Singarfield there is also a connector in Power BI, under 'Online Services' in the Get Data dialog box

Hi @LivioLanzo, from what I have seen that doesn't provide the sort of insights I need, it provides things like comments, news, and other public data. No performance data. Is this not the case? Thank you Singarfield

@singarfield,

Hi @v-yuta-msft, I have already tried this, but it only shows me information from the owner page (my personal page) not from the commercial page I run. I need insights from the commercial page. I also get an error when I try to view comments. Thank you Singarfield

@singarfield,

 

I would suggest you to submit your idea here.

Hi @v-yuta-msft, Do you mean then that there is no possible way currently of doing what I need? I was hoping there was a way of using the Facebook Graph API Explorer. Thank you, Sara
